French artist Emmanuel Polanco has been involved in some pretty cool projects. From his clean book cover designs to designing the posters for the Royal Shakespeare Company to illustrating the booklet for the United States Postal Service’s Commemorative Edition of the Edgar Allan Poe stamp.
His work leans surreal and offers a fresh perspective for these classic works.
